U.S. Greenhouse Gas Inventory | Climate Change - Greenhouse Gas Emissions | U.S. EPA
EPA develops the national greenhouse gas inventory each year to track the national trend in emissions and removals since 1990. The national greenhouse gas inventory is submitted to the United Nations in accordance with the Framework Convention on Climate Change Exit EPA Disclaimer. In preparing the annual emissions inventory report, EPA collaborates with hundreds of experts representing more than a dozen U.S. government agencies, academic institutions, industry associations, consultants and environmental organizations.
Please see the 2010 Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks for a detailed analysis of all U.S. emissions and removals. You may also download the Executive Summary (PDF) (26 pp, 249K, About PDF), which includes an overview of recent trends, anthropogenic sources and sinks of greenhouse gases and an explanation of the relative importance of emissions and removals from each source category.
